Mara and Brett Bunsick, Teen Camp Program Directors
Brett and Mara, our husband/wife duo, take the experiences they encounter in their daily lives as educators and translate them into expert planning for the yearly 3-day weekend of Teen Camp. Drawing upon their collective strengths in every area from creative planning to patience and flexibility, built upon years of experience with Youth Programming at both the JCC and Camp Rainbow, Brett and Mara have taken their love for young people and translated it into the most interactive and dynamic programming for our oldest campers, all of whom come to Camp Rainbow with different expectations and life experiences. Always striving to create a sense of normalcy for the campers, Brett and Mara excel at encouraging group participation, making certain each camper’s comfort level has been taken into consideration, and most of all, that everyone is having fun! Sharing a common belief that Teen Camp is about showing the campers that there are others going through the same life experiences as themselves, their hope is to create an environment where there is no judgment, only new friends to be made and a sense of belonging to be created.
